Formed during the year of 1994 by Ricardo Matsumoto on vocals, Mario Izzo and Marcos Mello on guitars, Bernardo Andrea on bass guitar and Gustavo Silva on drums, the brazilian band Dipnoi made their first studio recording in 1995, the tape "A good moonza / A better moonza", recorded live to DAT. After a year and a half, during which they made several shows in their hometown, Sao Paulo, and also during which the first tape received favourable reviews on many zines and magazines, the band returned to studio to begin the recording of their first EP in december 1996. A period of low activity followed, during which the band slowly finished recording the EP, that was finally mixed on june 1998. On early 1999, the band returned to studio once more to start recording six new compositions, plus a cover of "Crypt Keeper", a song by the underground band Noison. These recordings have not yet been completed for the band to be able to concentrate their efforts on the independent release of their EP. In the first half of 1999, some months before that record came out, drummer Gustavo decided to leave the band, and the drummer seat was taken by Augusto Moreira, ex-Mother Superior. Finally, in october 1999, Dipnoi is releasing their first EP, FKDDD, with six unreleased tunes and the four songs from their first tape as a bonus. On the beginning of the year 2000, drummer Augusto moved to Recife, in the northeast of Brazil, and the band started rehearsing again with old drummer Gustavo, but only to play the following concerts. Some new songs also started being written. In late february, Gustavo was invited to join the band again, and now he's back in Dipnoi.
